  • Hands-On With The HTC One V: This Little Guy Feels Great

    Hands-On With The HTC One V: This Little Guy Feels Great

    There’s been plenty of news about HTC of late. If you’ve been following our MWC coverage, you know all about it and I won’t bore you. Instead, I’ll just let you in on a little tidbit that we learned here at HTC’s New York roundtable and give you a few of my impressions of HTC’s One V. This is a CDMA/HSPA+ device, will be available both on-contract and as… Read More

    mBlox Launches New Cloud-Based Mobile Marketing Platform: Engage

    You rarely ever hear someone say, “boy, I sure did enjoy that mobile ad.” In fact, it’s rare to hear someone say they enjoyed any ad unless it’s around Super Bowl time. But I hold firmly to the belief that the only reason we don’t really enjoy ads is because, most of the time, they aren’t under our control. Relevancy and context are the most important… Read More

  • Asus Officially Unveils The Accessory-Laden Padfone

    Asus Officially Unveils The Accessory-Laden Padfone

    There you have it folks. The Asus Padfone is about as real as a phone can be, now that Asus has formally unveiled the little beast here at Mobile World Congress. What we’re looking at is a 4.3-inch Super AMOLED qHD display running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich with a Snapdragon dual-core S4 chip from Qualcomm. You’ll find an 8-megapixel camera on the back equipped with autofocus… Read More

  • Huawei Officially Announces The ICS-Powered Ascend D Quad Smartphone

    Huawei Officially Announces The ICS-Powered Ascend D Quad Smartphone

    We haven’t heard much from Huawei lately. Aside from a few smartphones here and there, the company hasn’t really made a huge push or impression as of late. But according to this release we’re seeing here at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Huawei has quite a bit in store for us, including the freshly announced Ascend D quad smartphone. Huawei wants to market this as… Read More

  • Netflix: We Have No Plans To Support BlackBerry Devices, Including The PlayBook

    Netflix: We Have No Plans To Support BlackBerry Devices, Including The PlayBook

    It seems as though nobody’s a fan of RIM’s BlackBerry PlayBook. Last year, I would’ve agreed wholeheartedly. What’s a tablet good for — ahem, an enterprise-style tablet no less — if you can’t natively check email, store contacts, or access a calendar. But even though much of that’s going to change with the release of PlayBook 2.0 OS, some… Read More

  • Klarna Execs’ Alleged Sexual Assault Case Dismissed (Update)

    Klarna Execs’ Alleged Sexual Assault Case Dismissed (Update)

    Remember those two high-level executives from Swedish startup Klarna who were arrested earlier this month on sexual abuse charges? Their names are Jens Saltin and Niklas Adalberth, and they were arrested at the W Hotel in New York after allegedly molesting a 19-year-old tourist from Texas. Well after a little follow up (it’s not often that we get to call into the New York City… Read More

  • Nokia Top Windows Phone 7 Vendor, But There’s Still Plenty Of Catching Up To Do

    Nokia Top Windows Phone 7 Vendor, But There’s Still Plenty Of Catching Up To Do

    The Microsoft-Nokia partnership is still in its infancy, but it would seem as though that little guy is about ready to start walking. Strategy Analytics today released Q4 numbers showing that Nokia holds 33 percent of the Windows Phone 7 market share, pushing the Finnish phone giant to the top spot globally. Windows Phone 7 devices in general are up 36 percent with 2.7 million units shipped… Read More

  • These iOS vs. Android Flame Wars Have To Stop

    These iOS vs. Android Flame Wars Have To Stop

    I just want to start this out by saying I love you guys. I really do. TechCrunch is lucky enough to have a really smart, well-informed readership which keeps us diligent in our reporting. You guys are also pretty hilarious, and who doesn’t enjoy a good ROFL now and then. But if there’s one thing I’ve learned through the comments section here at TechCrunch, it’s that… Read More

  • NPD: Apple Still On Top In Mobile PC Shipments, But HP Takes The Cake In Notebooks

    NPD: Apple Still On Top In Mobile PC Shipments, But HP Takes The Cake In Notebooks

    The PC industry is in decline, unless of course you count tablets. NPD is apparently doing just that, leaving Apple in the top spot among mobile PC vendors. According to the firm, Apple shipped nearly 23.4 million mobile PCs in the fourth quarter of 2011, which is 128 percent year-over-year growth. Cupertino shipped over 62.8 million mobile PCs over the entirety of 2011, representing 132… Read More

  • Grindr For Equality Needs You! Help Make The World A Gayer (Happier) Place

    Grindr For Equality Needs You! Help Make The World A Gayer (Happier) Place

    Grindr is awesome. So awesome it won a Crunchie this year for best location app, and so awesome that I often wish Blendr (Grindr’s gender-open counterpart) wasn’t just full of dudes. But the app that’s basically a gay man’s portal to happy times now boasts over 3 million users, which means that we’ve got an army on our hands ladies and gentlemen. This is huge for… Read More

  • With The AT&T Deal Dead, T-Mobile Plans To Invest $4 Billion In Network Modernization And LTE

    With The AT&T Deal Dead, T-Mobile Plans To Invest $4 Billion In Network Modernization And LTE

    It would be fitting to say that T-Mobile was derailed from its path in 2011. The company’s big break came in the form of a bid from AT&T to acquire the nation’s number four (and magenta-clad) carrier, but then as quickly as it swept into existence, the deal fell through. Now, however, T-Mobile has a plan (the “Reinvigorated Challenger Strategy”) to get back on… Read More

  • WinZip iOS App Tops 500K Downloads In 8 Days

    WinZip iOS App Tops 500K Downloads In 8 Days

    The WinZip iOS app, which lets you crack open .zip files from your iDevice, has only spent a short time on the App Store (and by short, I mean, like, a week). But there’s already plenty to brag about. The app saw over 30,000 downloads on Day One, and nearly 150,000 on Day Two. As of last night, WinZip has blown by the 500,000 download hurdle with approximately 512,000 installs. Read More

  • Nokia Teases “Pure View” Imaging Ahead Of MWC

    Nokia isn’t all that great with teasers. In August the company posted a teaser for the newest version of Symbian which just so happened to include the release date in it. Today, the teaser (at least) doesn’t give away the name of the product or anything huge like that, but it’s pretty clear what Nokia is hyping right here. Obviously the big news here is some form of… Read More

  • Samsung Galaxy Note Review: Who Do You Think You Are? Mr. Big Stuff?

    Samsung Galaxy Note Review: Who Do You Think You Are? Mr. Big Stuff?

    When I went to meet with Samsung to pick up the Galaxy Note, I was told something that I kept in mind throughout my last week or so with the phone. “People freak out and say it’s too big until they play with it — then they love it.” I was also told that the S-Pen is way more than just a stylus, and I generally felt excited to be playing with something different from… Read More

  • This Is What Microsoft Office Looks Like On An iPad

    This Is What Microsoft Office Looks Like On An iPad

    We heard all the way back in November that Microsoft would launch an Office app for the iPad, and it would seem that the big day draws even closer. According to an unverified image captured by The Daily, a version of Microsoft Office for iPad was caught running on one of Apple’s tablets. Read More

  • Pricelock Mobile App Puts The Energy Auction In Your Pocket

    Pricelock Mobile App Puts The Energy Auction In Your Pocket

    Pricelock is all about making the buying and selling of energy more efficient. It was true when the company launched the Marketplace, a customized online energy auction platform for utilities companies, power plants and other government and/or commercial entities to buy and sell natural gas, motor fuels and coal. But today, Pricelock is taking things one step further with the launch of a… Read More

  • Motorola Atrix 3 Leak Promises A Quad-Core Chip, 720p Screen, And A Huge Battery

    Motorola Atrix 3 Leak Promises A Quad-Core Chip, 720p Screen, And A Huge Battery

    The Motorola Atrix line has been a big one for the company. Yet with two iterations out so far, the phones have yet to really wow anyone. But according to this specs/photo leak, the Atrix 3 may leave you humming a different tune. Tian Jin Daily reports that the Atrix 3 will sport a 4.3-inch 720p display, which is a nice start but that’s not even where things get exciting. Under the… Read More

    Nokia Siemens Network, Qualcomm Prepare MultiFlow HSPA+ To Keep Data Signals Strong

    Our phones can do all kinds of things these days. Hell, millions of people — people from all different OS persuasions — are walking around talking to their phone. But even some of the most basic features — like, oh I don’t know… connecting to the Internet — could stand a few upgrades. That said, the Nokia Siemens Network and Qualcomm are putting together a… Read More

    After Conquering The World, Our Favorite Angry Birds Head Into Space On March 22

    I’m not even going to pretend that you don’t know what Angry Birds is… that would be insulting to both you and the game. But do you know what Angry Birds Space is? Nah, I didn’t think so. And truth be told, I’m not quite sure what it is either. According to Rovio, Angry Birds Space will be the biggest launch for the company to date. Remember what a big deal… Read More

  • WinZip iOS App Lets You Crack Open .Zip Files From Anywhere

    WinZip iOS App Lets You Crack Open .Zip Files From Anywhere

    Having access to your documents and pictures is really easy these days. About a million services, including Dropbox and iCloud, allow you to sync your stuff between devices, but there’s one little thorn in our collective cloud-syncing side: it’s called a .zip file. Fortunately, WinZip has just launched on the Apple App Store and it effectively rids us of this particularly… Read More
